A new poll shows that most Americans -- 56% -- want to see critics of President Obama's health care law drop efforts to block it and move on to other national issues.

Thesurvey by the Kaiser Family Foundation also reflects continued partisan divisions over the law in the days after a divided Supreme Court found it constitutional.

"Democrats overwhelmingly say opponents should move on to other issues (82%), as do half (51%) of independents and a quarter (26%) of Republicans," Kaiser reports.

"But," it adds, "seven in 10 Republicans (69%) say they want to see efforts to stop the law continue, a view shared by 41% of independents and 14% of Democrats."

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and other GOP candidates are making repeal of what they call "Obamacare" a major part of their campaigns.

Kaiser reports that "the public is also divided in its emotional reaction" to last week's Supreme Court decision, "with similar shares reporting being angry (17%) and enthusiastic (18%)."

It added:

"Negative emotions run highest among Republicans who support the Tea Party movement, with 49% of this group saying they are angry at the decision.

Solid majorities of voters of every political stripe say the decision won't impact whether or not they vote this November -- though Republicans are more likely than Democrats (31% compared with 18%) to say the result makes them more likely to turn out."
